Ecosystem & Landscape Dynamics (IBED-ELD)

Welcome to the web pages of the Department of Ecosystem & Landscape Dynamics (ELD). The mission of the Ecology and Landscape Dynamics research department is to improve our understanding of the functioning and dynamics of abiotic and biotic components of (geo-)ecosystems across landscapes through time.

We employ observational, experimental, and modelling approaches, in the field and laboratory, qualitatively and quantitatively to reveal how ecosystems and landscapes function. We work across a wide range of spatial (local to continental) and time (up to millions of years) scales, and our research contributes to the wise use of environmental resources.
